Nos.18, 18a, and 20 are located in central Swords Main Street, holding a high profile position on the main thoroughfare,
situated between AIB Bank, and ‘The Betsy’ public house, in addition to being close to the junction of Bridge Street and
Swords Castle. The properties also back on to the Castle Shopping Centre, a compact retail collection comprising 20
tenants and a car park, located to the immediate west of Nos.18, 18a, and 20 . Some of the adjoining businesses include
AIB Bank, Bank of Ireland, EBS Bank, The Betsy, The Cock Tavern, Peter Mark, and Fingal County Council, among others.
The proposed Metro Station, Swords Garda Station, and Pavilion Shopping Centre are also located less than 365 metres
from Nos.18, 18a, and 20, and there are over 100 shops in the Pavilions including Dunnes Stores, SuperValu,
JD Sports and Zara as shared anchor tenants. In addition to there being a host of cafés, bars, restaurants, and convenience
stores on main street, there are also two other small shopping centres/malls located on main street stretching back to
Forster Way, namely Swords Town Centre and Swords Plaza Village.
Nos.18, 18a, and 20 Main Street are conveniently located in an established residential area less than 2.3 kilometres to
the south-west of Junction 4, and 1.5 km the north of the Airside Retail Park. This is an established residential/retail area
located in the heart of Swords, close to an excellent road network that provides efficient access to the Dublin Road,
the M1, M50, and north suburbs. Swords is also located on a Quality Bus Corridor (QBC) providing direct access to
the City Centre.
Buses: Swords Express, 41, 41b, 41c, 33, 102, and the Metro North which has planned stations for the Pavilions
and Seatown.
The subject property is located in Swords Town Centre, eight kilometres from the Port Tunnel, and 13 kilometres to the
north side of Dublin City Centre. An apartment development may benefit from greater density from being located close
to the Metro north line. The property is also located close to a host of supermarkets and large retailers in the area i.e.
the Pavilions Shopping Centre in Swords, Castle Shopping Centre, Swords Town Centre Mall and Swords Main Street.
The surrounding area is a strong employment hub and occupiers in the area include Airside Business/Retail Park, Swords
Business Campus, and North Dublin Corporate Park.

The MetroLink is proposed to run from Swords to Dublin city centre before joining up with the Luas Green line –
and, crucially, is set to provide Dublin Airport with a direct public transport route into the city. We understand that
Stations are planned for the Pavilions and Seatown.
We understand that the finalised business plans for the long-awaited Metro Link will be submitted to the
Government at the start of 2021, followed by a railway order application and proposed timeframe.

The subject property is rectangular in shape and comprises a total site area of 0.08 hectares (0.2 acres). The property is
divided into three separate self contained shops with a width of approximately 13 metres, and a depth of approximately
60 meters that stretches back to the adjoining car park of the Castle Shopping Centre. There is ample pay and display onstreet parking on main street to the front of the premises, as well as a large car park at the rear of the premises for Castle
Shopping Centre.
The topography of the property slopes from east to west, down to the adjoining Castle car park site. According to
the HKR Architects Feasibility Report this could allow for a stepped apartment block development of three floors
at main street up to seven floors at the rear of the property. A copy of a detailed Massing Study of the site is available
upon application
